How to do the braided side bun hairstyle


Prep your hair

Use Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner after washing your hair with shampoo. This ensures a beautiful, frizz-free hairstyle. Make sure to rinse hair thoroughly to avoid product buildup.

Create ponytails

When hair is completely dry, create two ponytails side by side behind your left ear.


Start weaving

Divide the first ponytail into two sections, then pull the second ponytail to the left, through the first ponytail. Secure the halves with an elastic.

Combine your first and second ponytails to make a third.



Repeat Steps 3 and 4 with your second ponytail.

Continue weaving until you reach the other side. Then, create a regular side braid out of the rest of your hair. Secure with an elastic.

Create a bun by bringing your braid upwards and twisting it around itself, then secure with bobby pins.
